Trigger Warnings and Self Publishing

Along with a couple familiar ones, I picked up a new beta reader for The Association, and she asked me for a list of trigger warnings before she started reading. If you're unfamiliar with the term, a trigger warning is typically a short list of possibly traumatic material within a piece of media. An example… Continue reading Trigger Warnings and Self Publishing

A Short List of Happy Word-Related Things

I've been reading a lot more the past few years, and I've created this new habit of getting involved with three or four books at a time, a sort of poly-bibliophile, so switching between books coupled with the fact I am a pretty slow reader (everyone gets a voice in my head, and if the… Continue reading A Short List of Happy Word-Related Things

This was another fun little creative exercise that wasn't word-heavy but did get me in the mood to write.

Mood Boards for Brainstorming and Plotting

I've seen a few of these around, usually as a brainstorming technique. Some authors collect images and put together a board that embodies the mood they want to convey in their work: a mood board. I've been intrigued by them because they're very pretty, but never used them as part of the planning process. Instead,… Continue reading Mood Boards for Brainstorming and Plotting
